I am trying to figure out how to get market profile on tradestation. I have seen the code for TPO eld version 5(its something like that). I can not get that code to work at all. I have found a new code for it but it has errors as well. I am no coding expert and was curious if anyone out there can help me with this code.

The link to the site for the code is; http://marketheist.com/2010/05/25/market-profile-code-for-tradestation/

The code to copy and paste is
